Brings back the classic flyers we've all known and love! This mod gives vanilla flyer species back all of their pre-nerf'd stats. Yes, that means they can level speed again.

This mod brings back the original species' stats for the following vanilla dinos (including tames from before the nerf!):
•Wyverns (Fire, Lightning, and Poison)

This mod gives vanilla flyers back their original stats by altering their files, therefore it is incompatible with any other mod which also alters vanilla flyers or their eggs, as one will overwrite the other. This mod cannot affect flyers from other mods, only their mod authors can affect them. Other than mods which alter these files, Classic Flyers is full stackable. It also adds cleanly and removes cleanly, without losing any of your flyers. Please see the FAQ as well as the list of Compatible/Incompatible Mods for more details.

This mod also adds several new quality-of-life features to these fliers including ground attacks, taunt "attacks", backwards walking, and allows wyverns to wear saddle skins. It also adds a new Emote: Pet!, as well as a special Wyvern Stone which wyverns can use for a small armor boost. Please see the Features page for more details.

Help Support This Mod
At the request of several fellow ARK survivors, I've set up a Patreon account[] for players who wish to show their support. Please feel free to visit it if you would like to support my future ARK projects, pick up my next pizza or whatever ;)

I want to give a huge thank you to for sponsoring the Classic Flyers' test server[]. If you are looking to set up a new server or are considering switching over, I highly recomend them. My testing server has always run smoothly and I've been very impressed with their automatic mod updater.

Have fun and always love your fliers!

Does this mod still suffer from the over-spawning issue or have the Ark devs fixed that?

absolutely amazing. it goes without saying that this shouldn't have to be a mod, it should be in the core game anyway. thank you for this godsend.

Just a reminder on this mod's policy, please read the FAQ before posting questions and all bug reports belong in the Bug Reports discussion.

If your comments were deleted, its because they failed to follow this mod's stated policy.

The mod is working perfectly fine therefore any and all issues not already listed in the Bug Reports OP are on the users' end.
